NeoPhotonics to Showcase 64 Gbaud Coherent Product Suite at ECOC 2017
Higher Symbol Rate Components Increase OSNR and Reach for Coherent
GOTHENBURG, Sweden--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 18, 2017--
NeoPhotonics Corporation (NYSE: NPTN), a leading designer and
manufacturer of optoelectronic solutions for the highest speed
communications networks in telecom and datacenter applications, today
announced that it is showcasing its suite of 64 Gbaud optical components
for coherent systems operating at 600G and above at the European
Conference on Optical Communications in Gothenburg, Sweden, September
18-20, 2017. Headlining this product suite is the NeoPhotonics 64 Gbaud
Micro Modulator (Micro-MOD) with integrated drivers, which has now begun
sampling. NeoPhotonics has also begun shipping its 64 Gbaud Micro
Coherent Receiver (Micro-ICR) and it low-profile ultra-narrow line width
tunable laser for 400G and 600G applications.
The highest data rates depend on NeoPhotonics 64 Gbaud Coherent Product
Suite. 64 Gbaud components double the symbol rate over standard 100G (32
Gbaud) coherent systems. Higher symbol rates increase bandwidth while
maintaining superior OSNR, spectral density and reach performance. For
this reason, system designers choose to move to higher baud rates before
higher order modulation when they need to increase the capacity per
64 Gbaud Micro-MOD (CDM): NeoPhotonics 64
GBaud, polarization multiplexed, quadrature micro-modulator is currently
being sampled to major customers and features a co-packaged InP
modulator with linear, high bandwidth, differential drivers in a compact
package to operate in 400G and beyond pluggable modules that demand
reduced size and power consumption.
64 Gbaud Micro-ICR: NeoPhotonics Class 40
High Bandwidth Micro-Intradyne Coherent Receiver is in volume production
and is designed for 64 Gbaud symbol rates, doubling the RF bandwidth of
standard 100G ICRs. The 64 Gbaud Micro-ICR supports higher order
modulation such as 64 QAM.
Low Profile Micro-TL: NeoPhotonics
ultra-narrow linewidth external cavity tunable laser has been proven in
volume production and is now configured in a smaller, lower profile
package, which is designed to meet the stringent requirements for
packaging density in pluggable modules, including at 400G and 600G data
rates. The external cavity laser has a significantly narrower linewidth,
which is advantageous for higher order modulation formats.
“Our 64 Gbaud symbol rate optical components for coherent transport
provide system designers with the optical tools that match increases in
DSP capability to enable higher spectral densities and longer reaches,”
said Tim Jenks, Chairman and CEO of NeoPhotonics. “Each of these
products is based on our hybrid photonic integration technology and
leverages our existing proven design platforms, which allows us to ramp
production rapidly to match customer demands while maintaining high
quality and reliability,” continued Mr. Jenks.
In addition, as part of the ECOC Market Focus Program, Dr. Winston Way,
NeoPhotonics CTO, Systems, will present a paper entitled “Applications
of 64 Gbaud Optical Components and Modules” at the Market Focus Theatre
in the Exhibition Hall on Wednesday, September 20th from 13:50 to 14:20.
NeoPhotonics also will exhibit at ECOC in Stand 340 its suite of
standard and small form factor PIC-based components for 100G to 600G
coherent line-side applications, along with its 100G client-side and
data center CFP2-LR4 transceivers, along with its multi-cast switches
for “contentionless” ROADMs.
